I took the test below. I got 40 no and 6 yes. I am 13% homophobic and 87% non-homophobic. But that’s not good enough!
“My son just told me he has a boyfriend. What will everyone think?!” No.
“My daughter is pansexual. Where did I go wrong?!” No.
“My son came out as bi. I don’t understand why he couldn’t just keep it to himself.” No.
“My child just came out as gay. I told them it’s probably just a phase.” No.
“You’re too young to make decisions about your sexuality.” No.
“So you’re nonbinary… But what’s in your pants?” No.
“You’re too young/old to know you’re XY.” No. I would say it to a child under 13 though.
“I am not homophobic, but…” No.
“We don’t need pride anymore!” No.
“Why do you have to shove it in everyone’s faces?” No.
“Why is your entire personality about being gay?” No.
“All gays go to hell.” No.
“LGBTQ+ education in schools make kids gay.” No. But it might make girls lesbian or bisexual and it might make boys more likely to have sex with men.
“So, when did you turn gay?” No.
“I could never love my kid if they were queer.” No.
“Pansexual … So you’re attracted to …PANS?!” No.
“You have a girlfriend, so you’re not bisexual.” No.
“God wouldn’t want you to be bisexual!” No.
“Gay people can choose to leave homosexuality.” No. A very few lesbians can change, but it is very hard and takes a long time.
“Allowing gay people to serve openly will damage the armed forces.” No.
“Gay men controlled the Nazi Party and helped to orchestrate the Holocaust.” No.
“LGBT people don’t live nearly as long as heterosexuals.” Yes.
“People become homosexual because they were sexually abused as children or there was a deficiency in sex-role modeling by their parents.” No.
“Same-sex parents harm children.” Yes. The damage is the same as from single Moms though, so it’s not the worst thing on Earth.
“Gay men molest children at far higher rates than heterosexuals.” Yes.
“Same-sex attraction is unusual, immoral, abnormal and sick.” No.
“There is no such thing as bisexual, it’s just an excuse until they can admit they are gay/lesbian.” No.
“Marriage is meant to be between a man and a woman.” No.
“I don’t care what they do in their bedroom, just don’t flaunt it all over the place.” No. Not really. I don’t like pride parades though. Yuck.
“No homo.” Yes. I say it all the time. Sue me!
“Don’t you want to lead a normal life?” No.
“But how do you know when you’re so young? You may change your mind.” No.
“You shouldn’t be allowed to adopt kids. It’s not natural.” No.
“Being gay is like a genetic fault or something.” No. However, it is a developmental disorder.
“You can’t argue that it’s not natural. It’s meant to be man and woman.” No.
“You know it’s Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve?” No.
“Don’t put gay characters in cartoons. When it appears in a cartoon, it looks like it MUST to be that way and you are making the kids getting confused.” Yes.
Straight men: “Homosexuality is a disgusting sin get that shit out of my face it’s gross.” No, but we are disgusted by all forms of gay sex and affection. I can’t even stand to see two guys kissing. The revulsion is physical.
“Is there some cool new profile picture I can get if I don’t support gay marriage?” No.

“Gay marriage is wrong.” No.
“I don’t want gay people on TV, my kids would watch them and become gay too.” No.
“Gay men make me puke.” No. LOL.
“That’s so gay.” Yes, I say that sometimes. I would say faggy or faggoty though. Usually that would mean something so feminine that no straight man should touch it. I would also use it for extreme behavior, like I might say “faggoty pride parades” because they’re so over the top.
“The bible says, homosexuality is a sin.” No.
